Said to Se the Work of the Saloon Element of That City—Details of a Terrible Revenge. Last Wednesday night the homes ol John Maliin, E. S. Kissinger, and N, Eoseuberger in Muscatine were blown up with giant powder and totally wrecked. All three men had been active in assisting in enforcement of the prohibitory law in Muscatine and a la»ge number of injunctions had been issued. The explosions occurred simultaneously at about 1:30 o'clock in the morning. In Mr. Mahin's homo were sleeping himself and wife, two daughters, son, and servant. In Mr. Kissinger's wero himself and wife, two daughters, Miss Greene of Vincennes, and Miss Lucy Burroughs of, Washington. In Mr. Rosenberg-era were himself and wife, her sister, and Miss Emma Me- Cullough of Nebraska. By one of those almost miraculous circumstances, all were on the second floor of the houses, and all escaped. In the Muscatine Journal Mr. Mahin tells of the wreck of his home: The house was wrecked from its foundations, the first floor being torn and ripped up completely from one end to the other. The sitting room on the southeast corner was literally gutted. The floor had dropped, joists and all into the cellar, the side of the bay window being blown out, while the library adjoining on the north was in almost the same condition, the large swell on the east side being blown out and still hanging by a few nails. The dinning room just west had the floor all torn up, as was that in the parlor just south. The fire places in the parlor and sitting room were completely wrecked, while nearly every article of 'urniture was smashed all to pieces or was wrecked so badly that it can never DO repaired. The plastering and ceil- .ng in nearly every room in the house .s broken off, and many of the pictures on the walls were knocked down by the shock and utterly demoralized. Fortunately for the family all were sleeping up stairs. Mr. and Mrs. Mahin occupied the southwest corner room, Misses Vlabel and Florence the southeast corner, directly over where the bomb was )laced, and Master Harold occupied a room just north of his parents, while Miss Anna Vennink, the kitchen help, occupied a room above the kitchen. All of these chambers were upheaved, the windows all smashed and the furniture toppled over on the floor. When the report was heard Mr. Mahin was aroused and dazed, but thought it was a thunder clap, and listened for a second for rain on the roof. Mrs. Mahin was tumbled out of bed and it was discovered that the house was filled with smoke. They thought the house had >een struck by lightning and on calling .o the girls, found they were awakened, Vliss Florence calling for help, having seen struck by something and stunned >r dazed, while her feet were caught ast between some of the bed room fur- liture. All were gotten out into the hall, and Mrs. Mahin ran into Harold's 'oom to find him. She was almost irostrated when she found he was miss- ng. Words failed to express the father's and mother's feelings at the ter- •ific shock felt, and an indescribable eeling that flitted through their minds d bodies at this seeming loss of their 'oungest.son. They called for him and larold responded from down stairs, he laving in some way found his way down tairs. The floors were literally strewn vith fragments of glass, and barefooted, slad in loose robes, they flew down tairs for escape. On reaching the first loor it was found that all the flooring lad been torn up and the front doors vedgud so tightly it seemed impossible o escape. Harold was squeezed ihrough the doorway, while the others made their exit through a parlor win- low. How they escaped falling into .he cellar while groping about in the lark is a mystery and miracle. Harold did fall through but caught himself, vhile one of the girls had a close call rom falling. The heavy wardrobe in he girls room fell over striking Miss Vlabel on the thigh and bruising it badly. Had it struck her head it vould certainly have resulted fatally, Nothing could have more effectually nade the destruction and wreck com- >lete. The side walls are bulged out rom the foundations from a foot to a oot and a half each, and the founda- ion walls on the east side are badly demoralized, and fragments of lumber and whole blinds were carried nearly over to Samuel Cohn's home, about 00 eot away, while in Mr. C.'s house over-ill windows on the weut side were jroken to pieces, and on the west side f Mr. Mahin's house all the glass in ). M. Lambert's east side are destroyed, >esidos badly jarring the walls. Out n the street pieces of lumber were ound, and in the Mahin home doors ivere wrenched off and many of them iQtally wrecked. No clue to the perpetrators of the deed is yet made public. A reward Amounting to $7,000 has been offered by u .he city and county, Gov. Boies was n Muscatine Monday, Ho denounces <he outrage, and says he will do all in iis power to assist in capturing the guilty parties. FARM loans, 7 per ot., Skinner Bz'os.
